Cultural Immersion And Rejuvenation

Moreover, following the annual Run For Children: Luang Prabang Half Marathon, which raises funds for the Lao Friends Hospital for Children, providing free high-quality medical care to over 15,000 children each year, La Residence Phou Vao has curated an exclusive package designed to reinvigorate runners for a swift and relaxing recovery.La Residence Phou Vao

The Art Of Eating Well

In homage to the end of the Buddhist Lent, the hotel’s flagship restaurant Tam Nan will launch a Buddhist Lent menu inspired by the pureness and natural simplicity of temple food, delving into Luang Prabang’s sacred culture and time-honoured heritage.

This unique culinary experience will be forged with Tam Nan’s signature revival of age-old Laotian tradition, by way of slow cooking methods and a legendary ‘Heart-to-Table’ concept led by Executive Chef Larisa Vesterbacka. Meals are purposefully tailored to the nutritional needs of marathon runners, ensuring optimal natural electrolytes to recharge quickly.La Residence Phou Vao
